Claudia Esteve

Board Member

As an Art historian, Claudia is a firm believer in the power of beauty and kindness to heal. She is a founding member of the JAEC Foundation.

She believes there is still a tragic misconception and dangerous stigmatization of “mental illness,” and that the current medical paradigm of diagnosis and treatment only aggravates the situation. In recent years, Claudia has been involved with voluntary work in psychiatric care, and is in the process of creating the Justice, Action, and Education in Compassion (JAEC) Foundation in Switzerland, whose mission will be to create awareness and respect and favor alternative options for the most vulnerable, mistreated, and misunderstood individuals and communities of our society.
